Husband Tells Wife to Pick a Child to Kill, She Kills Him Instead

Bordering on Euripides:

An abusive Australian husband wrote down the names of his four children and demanded his wife pick which one he would kill, a Brisbane jury has been told. Mrs Falls, 42, has pleaded not guilty to murdering her husband by lacing his dinner with crushed sleeping pills then firing two bullets into his head as he dozed in his favourite recliner at their home on May 25, 2006. The shooting took place in front of two of the couple’s teenage daughters, while another daughter was also in the Nicholas Street home and the Falls’ three-year-old son slept nearby.
